Each residential college has a number of Academic Fellows, upperclassmen selected based on proven academic achievement and demonstrated willingness to help fellow students. Fellows offer free academic assistance on a regular basis (“office hours” in the college commons), conduct review sessions leading up to midterms, and provide individual tutoring by request. Additionally, Lovett’s Academic Fellows organize the annual Lovett Undergraduate Research Symposium (LURS), an opportunity for Lovett students to present their research and compete for prestige and cash prizes.

The Lovett Undergraduate Research Symposium (LURS) serves as a platform for Rice students in the South colleges to display their original research projects, be it results from a research assistantship or from a course. Students do not need to present a completed project; rather, we want to provide an experience in which students may gain practical experience communicating scientific work and gain feedback from professors in their field of study. This includes work in progress, as well as work on which the student is not the first author (with permission of the first author). LURS will be held in Lovett commons on Friday, March 27th at 3 pm .
Applicants may select to be considered for an oral presentation. If selected, they will be expected to give a 10 minute talk regarding their work. Regardless of whether the student wants to present their work as a poster presentation or an oral presentation, they must submit an abstract on Friday, March 6th by 11:59 pm using this link here . The Lovett College Academic Fellows' research branch shall host workshops for students from all south colleges for both writing an abstract (Sunday, March 1st 7-9pm) and preparing a presentation (Thursday, March 12th 7-9pm). Both workshops will be held in the Lovett PDR.
